The Fairmont Orchid Hawaii

Bask in the tropical pleasures of Hawaii’s Big Island by staying at The Fairmont Orchid, a 32-acre, oceanfront luxury resort with a sugar-white sandy lagoon and aquamarine waters.  The Fairmont Orchid is packed with seaside thrills: Learn how to surf from one of the Fairmont Orchid’s on site experts, snorkel through beautiful Hawaiian waters while observing rare green sea turtles in their natural habitat as they forage along the the coral reef at Pauoa Bay, or conquer the waves in a sleek Hawaiian Outrigger canoe.  Some more leisurely activities include learning how to weave bowls and baskets from local palm fronds, discovering the ocean’s natural sanctuary, including baby and adult sea creatures, at the resort’s tide pool, or just a laid-back game of beach volleyball.

Who needs an alarm clock when you can wake up to the sounds of waves crashing against the shoreline?  That’s exactly how you’ll start each day at The Fairmont Orchid’s tranquil accommodations.  You’ll also get spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding mountains, and a private lanai from which you can spend a relaxing evening and watch the sun set over this tropical paradise.

While Hawaii is of course best known for its beautiful beaches, the Fairmont Orchid strives to be more than just a beach resort.  For example, tennis players of all skill levels will love the Vic Braden Tennis College, which was recently named one of the top five tennis camps in the world by Tennis Resorts Online.  Here, you can improve your game through private or semi private lessons with respected experts, and state of the art Dartfish video analysis.

The Fairmont Orchid is also home to the 36-hole Francis H. l’i Brown golf course, which is lauded by Golf Magazine as “one of the most breathtakingly beautiful seaside golf courses in the world.”  A bold claim, but once you see your shot framed by the roaring Pacific, you’ll see that it is certainly warranted.  There are two separate and distinct courses for golfers to challenge themselves with; the South Course and the North Quest.  The challenging south course is unique in that it is built on a prehistoric Kaniku lava flow.  Snaking through stark, rugged, a’a lava, balls hit into the lava on this course will careen wildly, either miraculously bouncing back to the fairway or if lady luck isn’t smiling on you, marooning you into even more trouble in deeper rough.  The North Course, on the other hand, is characterized by rolling terrain and kiawe groves.  Herds of feral goats frequent the entire course, moving from hole to hole throughout the day.  Both courses offer golfers great views of the mountains and The Pacific Ocean, as well as verdant green fairways that are patterned with black lava.

After a day of fun and exploration at the beach, a few games of tennis, or tackling the golf courses, the Fairmont Orchid Spa proves to be an alluring oasis of relaxation.  This oceanfront spa gives you the opportunity to receive a massage while literally laying steps away from the Pacific Ocean.  Here, the gentle trade winds and the awe-inspiring views are as much a part of every massage as are the healing hands of the spa’s expert therapists.  The spa, which is surrounded by abundant tropical fauna like blooming orchids, the requisite coconut palms, towering banana trees, features nine outdoor waterfall huts, six oceanfront treatment cabanas, and three additional indoor treatment rooms.  Two ‘puka hale,’ or ‘window huts,’ are cantilevered out over the water with a special floor window allowing views of the waterway while lying face-down on the treatment table.  Don’t miss the 10,000 square foot free form pool, which is open 24 hours a day and is surrounded by beautiful tropical foliage, and two heated lava rock whirlpools.

Come get away from it all at the Fairmont Orchid in Hawaii, an excellent five-star resort that straddles the white sands and turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean, and offers unlimited opportunities to take advantage of world-class golf, tennis, scuba diving, and snorkeling, plus one of the most alluring spas on the planet, all while engulfed in the island’s perfect tropical climate.
